Strawberry Sunday

I actually wore this outfit last week, but simply had to save it for posting today once the sundae/Sunday pun occurred to me.

Oh, the joys of creating blog post titles (to be honest I rather like the part of thinking them up, I know some people find it tedious)!

My strawberry sweater is the only thing I own with sequins (I think…). Many times I’ve thought about buying one of those beautiful sequin jackets, but I keep wondering how often I’ll wear it, i.e. would I wear it to anywhere other than a party? Maybe I’ll get one one day, then they’ll be sooo last year. Oh well. I love big motifs on sweaters and although this is quite a “cute” one, I added the velvet blazer and maxi skirt to stop it getting into little-girl-cutesy territory… not a good look at my age.

Hope everyone’s having/had a wonderful weekend… Stay safe/dry/warm/stationary

(So windy in the south of England! My hair looks like it’s been through a hedge backwards!)

    That blazer is such a pretty sapphire blue. It looks great with your coloring.
    Only you could make a strawberry, sequined sweater look super chic. I love your style.

    I am pinning your hairstyle to my hair board on Pinterest…need to try that look on myself one of these days.
    xoxo, A

      You're a sweetheart, Adrienne!!! I'll let you and everyone else in on a secret (though I didn't mean it to be a secret): the plait isn't my hair, it's simply a false plait heairband. Sooo much easier than plaiting it yourself! I've got a couple (for different hair colours I've had) and they were from ebay. Easy!

      Catherine xoxo

    Gorgeous necklace…love it! You could sell the sweater down here to wear to our annual Poteet Strawberry Festival!

    What a terrific outfit, Catherine – The strawberry is the star and your jacket and maxi make wonderful supporting players. You look gorgeous, and your braided hair is so lovely (not a bit messy!).

    Love your strawberry top! The skirt goes really well too, a nice cheerful outfit x

    I love it! Honestly, I don't know how you come up with these creative combinations. In a zillion years I'd never think this up. And probably wouldn't wear it as I don't think I'd be able to pull it off. But I think this is perfect on you – fun, fits so well, goes well with you hair and your love of the jewels! You should pride yourself on your very individual style.
